WHAT IS HAPPENING: The Boise State swimming and diving team will wrap up its home schedule this coming weekend when the Broncos host Mountain West Conference rival Wyoming at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday in a dual meet at the West Family YMCA and Boise City Aquatics Center.

TIME CHANGE: The start time for Saturday's home finale versus the Wyoming Cowgirls has been moved up 30 minutes to accommodate the Cowgirls' travel plans. The meet originally scheduled to start at 11 a.m. will now begin with the 3-meter diving event at 10:30 a.m. and end approximately at 1 p.m.

EXHIBITION SWIM: The Broncos and Cowgirls will meet at 5 p.m. on Friday at the West Family YMCA and Boise City Aquatic Center for a few exhibition races in events that are not normally swam: 300-yard individual freestyle, 100-yard individual medley, 50-yard backstroke, 150-yard butterfly, 50-yard breaststroke, 150-yard backstroke, 50-yard butterfly, 150-yard breaststroke and 8x50 freestyle relay. In all it should last about 45 minutes.

BIG SPLASH: Saturday's home finale will also feature the "Big Splash" contest featuring four members of the 2017 Mountain West Conference and Las Vegas Bowl Championship football team. They will compete head-to-head with the four split up into two semifinal pairings, followed by the winners advancing to a championship splash-off for the title. This event is tentatively scheduled for 11:50 a.m. after the first round of swimming events and before the second diving event.

SENIOR DAY: The Broncos will host a brief ceremony honoring their three seniors Emma Chard, Emily Mathis and Monica Bottelberghe on Saturday. The ceremony will start at approximately 10:50 a.m. after the first diving event and before the start of the swimming events.
